under george w. bush -- >> 19 times. they voted 19 times. some $4 trillion they raised the debt ceiling 19 times under bush. without a peep, without a squeal. regular, standard votes. >> bill: no demands. >> no demands at all. >> bill: no unless you do this, we're going to shut it down. just 19 times. and now it is pure politics with barack obama. and i thought the president did a very good job yesterday of calling them out. we played this clip earlier. the republicans have two choice. do the responsible thing and pay our bills or -- >> send this country into a tailspin. it will be on their heads. when you have outside republicans saying you can't play these kinds of games you're going to pay for it politically, at the end of the day, i don't know how many of them are going to be able to. >> bill: ben bernanke from the fed telling congress hey, get serious. get serious. raise the debt ceiling and stop playing games. i don't know igor. got a lot to keep track of. somehow you manage to stay on top of all of it. >> great team over at think progress. >> bill: thinkprogress.org. thank you so
, negotiating a global treaty is hard work and obama has been no better than george w. bush was. a lot of people have stopped talking about those issues have gotten involved in specific small things, like reversing their position on cracking, which used to be seen as a green energy and a lot of people are opposing. neil: maybe this is a healthy development for folks like you and people have come to realize that you have to have money to invest. >> we do. public investments are going on. they're going of the united states. >> but it's not coming out of thin air. >> okay, but it's not an investment. we are investing. $70 billion. >> not entirely, it is creating green energy jobs. >> do think you're getting as much bang for the buck trying to do so? >> well, yes, we are anticipated to see 4.4 million jobs. neil: but what about this year? i would check back. >> you know, if you look at every sector -- neil: my argument is that we have not delivered on some of this. i just don't think certain things have panned out. >> it's about money and people don't see a return for their investment. they say, oka
that george h.w. bush got in 1988. george h.w. bush won a landslide over michael dukakis. we know what happened to mitt romney. the same thing's happening now. the political ground is moving under their feet, and right now, sadly, neither they, nor the nra, is doing what it takes to make sure they adapt to changing times. and if they don't do it pretty y quickly, there's going to be changes for both organizations. >> more broadly among house republicans, you wrote in their response to colin powell, you in 1996 did not think he was the right choice to be the nominee, but you said the republican party of 2013 bears little resemblance to the party of ronald reagan that would have responded to powell's concerns with an all hands on deck effort to win the war back. it's big enough to win back the white house in 2016. and that's, to the point, we have a more and more bifurcated congress, not the congress you served in. there were 49 votes, only 49 votes for sandy relief last night. that says a lot. there were more than 49 votes for gulf damage and repair after katrina. >> colin powell is a m
to war in iraq, that is the original sin of the george w. bush era in america. but it does not mean that they cooked up all that fake and misleading intelligence all by themselves. some of it came from enemies of saddam and iraqi exiles and expats who shoved it to the u.s., knowing it was false, but hoping we would nevertheless fall for it because they wanted us to invade. that recent history of the u.s. and how we get into wars these days looms large. it looks large particularly on days like this when we see bombshell headlines like this one. our friend josh rogin at foreign policy tonight reporting that someone inside the obama administration says that he or she has seen a cable that if the information in that cable is true would be a very scary thing. the headline, as you can see there, "chemical weapons used in syria." chemical weapons used. nobody is known to have used chemical weapons in 25 years. we know syria has them. but have they used them in their civil war? because that really would change everything. but look back at that headline again. the part before the part that w
that the republicans have one idea, and that's to cut spending. they don't do that when george w. bush was -- >> i thought their one idea, david, was cutting the deficit. >> that's -- they say that's the case, but it really is they want to just talk about spending cuts as if that is going to help the economy. and any mainstream economist now tells you that you may have to do that in some ways for long-term deficit implications but that's not good in the short run. even simpson/bowles say don't cut so fast. >> and just to be clear, it's not at all clear that they actually have coherent plans for anything they're suggesting. they have sort of hand waving spending cuts, entitlement reform without really writing down a specific path to get there. >> incredible. david corn and jared bernstein, gentlemen, thank you so much. stay with us. we'll be right back. what do we want to build next ? that's the question. every day. when you have the most advanced tools, you want to make something with them. something that helps. helps safeguard our shores. helps someone see through a wall of fire. helps those nowh
and that the united states is not engaged. >> look at george w. bush. in 2000 he said he would have a restrained, humble foreign policy. then 9/11 hit. and now we've been dealing with wars for over a decade. we have already made reference to it while the chinese have been investing in africa. we've been dropping bombs in iraq. we are now in afghanistan. 12 years in. $2 billion a week. our defense budget keeps exploding. so an iranian crisis comes at the absolute worst time for this country. >> that's what i was saying early on. >> on so many points. >> things could change dramatically this year. >> richard and i have talked about this a lot. in search of a metaphor, have i been thinking about the islamic role in africa and the middle east, think of it size a large, very dry forest after years of drought. and a lightning strike anywhere, which is unanticipated, starts a brush fire. and then it goes across. we just saw what happened in algeria. what's going on in syria at the moment. and we are not dealing state-to-state. there's an entirely new set of rules for dealing with that critical part of
a second time. the president has 55%. it's a little bit better than george w. bush four years ago at the start of his second term and better than richard nixon. but you can see the president's approval rating is a lot lower than some other predecessors like bill clinton, ronald reagan, lyndon johnson, eisenhower and truman. another way to see how he stacks up against his predecessors. look at this number. how things going in the country. 49% say things are going well in the country right now. how does that stack up against president bush four years ago? 58%. a higher number for clinton in his second tem and reagan in his second term. >> when you look at how the country is divided, one has to imagine and we've been told, that he's going to talk about a hopeful speech. a unifying speech. but not many more details than that. what kind of statistics do you see when we look at the divisions within the country? >> brand new numbers from cnn/orc. we asked if the country was more deeply divided now than in the past? 76% say yes. only 22% say no. here's another way to visualize it. here's
this because long term the republican party has to fix this at the national level. >> george w. bush tried to address this head on. what do you think about the controversy now? >> well, frankly, i think that you can look at both parties and find things you don't like. in the republican party it's extremely small sliver. i suspect there's people in the democratic party that have some very old views. i'm disappointed that secretary powell would only look in one direction and that's the republicans. i think there's a hostility in much of the liberal wings of the political party towards organized religion. i think it's intolerance of the left twashd people of good faith on the right and that worries me. i wish colin powell had talked about that as well. i wish colin powell had talked about the implications of chunk hagel talking about the jewish lobby that intimidates people. he said, make the jews pay. colin powell could have talked about that and whether that was a dark strain or is his focus only on when republicans act wrong? chuck hagel did, too, in these circumstances. it's a topic worth
seniors, when george w. bush signed no child left behind there were children there. how is this any different than any other piece of legislation that affects a group that has particular interest and the group is present when the signing takes place? martha: yeah. >> or when the announcement takes place. martha: the children wrote letters to the president, tucker. and they have been asked to stand by him. they're having their voices heard in america. what is wrong with that? >> well, this is not, this is very serious, very adult and incredibly complicated issue and to bring children on stage is to engage in a kind of moral blackmail. if you're against this legislation you're against the kids. the truth is, no serious person who knows anything about crime noll dpi or violence in our violence in the society believes banning weapons based on their cosmetic qualities is going to save a single life. it is ludicrous. even the white house is not claiming that the so-called assault weapons boon would have prevented the newtown tragedy or any other shooting or any other 300 deaths attributed
♪] >> oh, no! >> ahhhhh! >> it is the end of the world. >> stephanie: i think i saw, karl, george w bush did about 300 executive orders the president has done about 140, something like that. >> yeah. i would point out that the president would have done anything on this. they would have played right into the nra membership retention themes which are basically fear and paranoia. >> stephanie: right. >> the notion that -- the only reason that any of the things that we mentioned are scary is if you are convinced that the government is going to come get you. >> stephanie: exactly. >> but otherwise what do we expect? >> stephanie: right. and by the way another fyi, george w. bush also called for an assault weapon's ban. >> in the first four years of his administration president obama did more to expand handgun ownership. these are normal rational things and you have nothing to fear. >> yes, but he's black. >> stephanie: all right. ollie north on nra news radio. >> it is now going to be done by executive action. >> shocking! >> that's contrary to my understanding of what the

mentioned george w. bush, his father, george h. w. bush, has left the hospital in houston after nearly two months of being treated for bronchitis- related cough and other health issues. we go next to baltimore, maryland, jerry, a democratic caller. caller: thanks for taking my call. the republicans are very high disingenuous, and i'm being polite. if anybody was listening to the defense appropriation bill at the end of last year, just before they let us go over the fiscal cliff, republicans added $20 billion more than what the president asked for for the defense appropriation bill. this is the 20% there are going to have to cut during sequestration. now the defense department, if you keep the continuing resolution versus making a budget, they will get $680 billion this year. $20 billion more than what they ask for. yet they cannot pass a sandy bill. america, wake up. republicans that are in charge, and i guess you ququality party, they're just out to take our money. the poor and disenfranchised, they just laugh and say get a job, and they will not give you a job. host: on twitter -- in mic
. george w. bush, when he was signing no child left behind did that in front of a school of children in ohio. you've even got ben quayle, the former congressman from arizona got into some trouble when he sent out a campaign flier with two children on it that looked like they were his daughters but it turned out he doesn't have any kids and they were his brother's children. >> bill: lindsey graham used his sister's kids as props. that's different. >> children, there's no precedent there saying children are completely off-limits in politics. i think the question here is a lot of times they've been brought forward to these kind of presidential conferences after a policy agenda item has been achieved. this time the white house is moving forward with them in order to try to persuade americans to change their minds on this issue. i think that's where there was a little bit of disagreement here on the conservative side. >> bill: but they'll bitch about anything that obama does. as far as i'm concerned this whole national attention this focus and this demand for action really was triggered -
. but in october of 2005, george w. bush signed into law a federal law called the protection of the lawful commerce act. you know you have a lot of power in congress when you don't even have to come up with a snappy acronym to get it enacted. it was enacted in 2005 and a tough speech today the enormous protection for these kind of lawsuits to be whether they were in conjunction with them or not. they gave them a very broad immunity from liability. the kind of immunity that essentially no other product manufacturer in the united states enjoys. they didn't provide people that were harmed with any kind of alternative compensation scheme and they even said that there but retroactively applied to the pending lawsuits that had to be dismissed and in fact they were and as a result the public health function of lawsuits and litigation in general, something that steve taught us about for many years was eroded. there were some relatively narrow exceptions to the plcaa that allowed the lawsuits to proceed nevertheless. and new york city took advantage of one of those exceptions. one of those exceptions is the

four years ago as far as more transparency on the reversal fund in terms of george w. bush -- what physically decision was made to change that? was there a request, could you raise by to become more money? >> to be honest none of those were the considerations. my understanding is that we just kind of, you know, each one of these is created every four years. they are not continuations of the same committee from four years ago. like i said we are lucky enough to have us asked from last time and this is a decision made in this instance in terms of disclosure, and again the given the fact that there is the requirement as will all be public. this was a rare attempt to go above and beyond that to have a level of transparency. >> over the weekend and on monday are their telephone numbers we can call if we need to check up on something that may be an arrest or something on the floor, who is going to be available to answer phone calls? >> one more time from your question? >> on monday if we need to check on anything that happens out of the ordinary may be an iraq or demonstrations comes som

they have to say. i actually joined with president george w. bush, he wanted a comprehensive immigration reform, i told him i strongly support him on that. we don't face this issue in vermont. we don't have canadians wanting to come across the border for a better life or better health care system or whatever in the united states. they are pretty comfortable where they are. but that's not the case everywhere. i'm also very worried -- some of the things i hear and some of the blogs xenophobic attitude, kick those foreigners out, probably by somebody who is one or two generations away from being immigrants themselves. that's not what america is about. that's not what attracted my grandparents and great grandparents to this country. so i am perfectly willing whether it's the gang of six, 12, or something, but in the united states senate we need a gang of 51 to get it through and you need majority in the house. i have talked with president obama about this. i know he's strongly committed to real immigration reform. would like to see the dream act passed. i'd like to see a number of other thin
